THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW

THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW addresses and explores notions of abstraction through works by five selected artists from the region in Sullivan+Strumpf Singapore’s 2017 group exhibition which opens on 13 May.

Though abstract art is often synonymous with ideas that are drawn away from objective representation, each of the selected artists in this exhibition will present a new body of work that deconstructs conventional characterisation of abstraction; by challenging their fundamental limits and accessibility through their practices and exploration with unconventional mediums, including sculptural and video installation and paper carving, amongst others.

That Was Then, This Is Now substantiates the progression of abstraction in the modern context, therein through its purity of form, colour and sense of space, offers its viewers a sensory experience and an intelligibility to the works. The show will feature works by Jeremy Sharma, Irfan Hendrian, Faisal Habibi, Matthew Allen and Young Rim Lee.
